The low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico continues to slowly move west-southwest towards the coast of northern Mexico. Water vapor imagery and infrared satellite still show a decent counter-clockwise spin to this system, but no further development is forecast due to high shear and limited space. However, with daytime heating, the system is producing pockets of heavy rain and even a few thunderstorms. I will not be surprised if a few showers and/or thunderstorms formed in the eastern and middle Valley later on this afternoon. The best chance of rain will still be on Saturday, (6/4/2011) as easterly winds should kick off a few sea-breeze showers, with enough moisture in the lower levels.
